An awesome appetizer recipe from our friend Lacy LeBlanc, Program Director for PunkTorah.
Says Lacy, “If eating in company politer than a five year old, use a fork & knife.”
White Bean Hummus
2 cans great northern or other white beans, undrained
1 T oregano, chopped
garlic, peeled & chopped to taste
salt & pepper to taste
1 T olive oil
lemon juice to taste
Saute oregano and garlic in olive oil until fragrant over medium heat, being careful not to burn the garlic. Add white beans & liquid from cans, salt, & pepper, cook until liquid has almost completely evaporated. Allow mixture to cool slightly, then pour into food processor. Add lemon juice (more juice yields runnier, but still tasty, hummus) & puree. Store in fridge.
tomatoes, cored & chopped
basil, roughly chiffonade’d
Mix all ingredients & store in fridge until ready to use.
